Frying pan with non-stick coating - what are its advantages
Today in the shops the choice of pans and pans impresses with its diversity. Frying pans can differ in diameter, in manufacturing method and in material, as well as in price. Prices for them today can vary from hundreds to thousands of rubles. Especially popular is the dish with non-stick coating, which appeared on the modern market relatively recently, but quickly managed to win the love of housewives. But sometimes, after coming to the store to buy, many are lost when they see how huge the assortment of kitchen utensils is and just do not know how to choose a pan with non-stick coating. There are some simple rules, knowing which, you can make a successful purchase.
Frying pan with non-stick coating today is available in the arsenal of almost any housewife. What are its advantages over traditional cast iron frying pans? The main advantage of such dishes is the minimum use of fat and oil in cooking, because right now, nutrition is a favorite topic for articles in printed publications and TV shows, from which people learn about the dangers of fried in oil products. Another advantage of this frying pan is ease of care. When properly used, unlike traditional dishes, do not rub with a sponge in the hope of getting rid of burnt fat.
There are several types of non-stick coating, but all have in their composition a material such as polytetrafluoroethylene, known as Teflon. Teflon is now recognized as environmentally friendly, besides it is not subject to aggressive attack of alkalis and acids. Teflon was discovered by a chemist Roy Plunkett, an employee of the famous company DuPont.
Very often in the everyday life of a frying pan with non-stick coating is called just "teflon", but this is not entirely correct. The fact is that the inscription "Teflon" can only be on products that have the license DuPont. Other companies produce dishes with a completely different non-stick coating.
When choosing kitchen utensils, it should be borne in mind that a frying pan with a non-stick coating of proper quality can not have a smooth surface with a glossy sheen. Tableware with such a coating is an ordinary forgery. Quality coating should be matte and rough to the touch.
Non-stick coating can be applied to the dishes in two ways - by knurling and spraying, which is done with the help of an industrial spray. Frying pan with non-stick coating, which is applied by rolling, will serve much less than that on which it was sprayed. In the first case, it is less resistant to the formation of microcracks.
Frying pan with non-stick coating, reviews on the properties of which are currently very ambiguous, can be made of cast iron, aluminum and even steel. Each of these materials has its own characteristics. However, at present, many prefer the steel kitchen utensils, because it is practical and very durable. Aluminum frying pan with non-stick coating can also last long enough if it has the necessary thickness. Utyatnitsy, frying pans and kazany from thin aluminum quickly enough fail.
